Hugo S.H. Seto

Posted On May 16th, 2013 -

HUGO S. H. SETO As the prisms of light reflect a rainbow of colors, we are embraced by the unconditional love of Hugo. At the moment he came into our world, his intelligence, inner strength, and genuine caring shone through the twinkle of his eyes. Hugo’s inquisitive nature, and practical base continued to develop throughout his early life. He operated from the heart as friends and family shared his adventures. His integrity and fairness guided his leadership at home, work and as a community volunteer. Hugo was a proud husband, father, grandfather and mentor. He believed that a “seedling” needed a secure, loving environment along with endless amounts of nourishment to cultivate strong roots. A symbiotic relationship with one’s environment creates the respect and trust to be a contributing member of the community. Hugo joyfully supported each individual without judgment or prejudice, allowing each to discover his or her “joie de vivre”. Many shared in his escapades, travels, golf, and culinary indulgences. Like a tree with strong roots, and copious foliage, he easily adapted and enjoyed his “World” adventures. Although never one to focus on accomplishments, Hugo’s humble, open mind and innovative spirit placed him at the forefront of international business. Hugo means “bright in mind and spirit”. He discovered and lived his truth and passed on peacefully. We will be forever grateful as he continues to shine upon us. Hugo is survived by his wife of 59 years: Phyllis, daughter: Susan, son-in-law: Tim, grandchildren: Elliott, Erica and Hugh, brothers: Chauncey (Akiko), Dudley, Dexter (Marjorie), and Anthony. Private burial at Diamond Head Memorial Park followed by A Celebration of Life: 4:30pm, Tuesday, May 21st at Wai’alae Country Club.

He was sincerely devoted to his family, his students and his professional goals.

He was predeceased by his parents Mary Jane Guyton Durnin and William George Durnin, M.D. Through his life’s work as classroom teacher, coach, lifeguard, first responder and teacher educator, Robin demonstrated his deep concern for others. He was interested in meeting the educational needs of children, youth and aspiring teachers. He was most proud of his students’ accomplishments in a statewide mathematics competition called “Math Counts,” a program he coached during much of his teaching career at Kamehameha Schools. Robin graduated from Long Beach Wilson High School and Claremont Men’s College and served as a surgical nurse in the US Army at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Later he obtained advanced degrees in education from California State University Long Beach, Pepperdine University and Claremont Graduate School. Robin was a highly skilled athlete in water sports. In his youth he set national swim records and was recognized as “All City” and “All America” in swimming and water polo. Many sailors remember Robin as an outstanding class boat competitor who placed in local, regional and national events. He also crewed in big boat sailing regattas throughout the globe. He paddled for Waikiki Yacht Club in the masters’ division in six-man outrigger canoes and worked out with the Lanikai Canoe Club Sunrise Crew. He enjoyed playing golf with his friends in California and Hawaii. While he was a teenager, Robin sailed with his father from Long Beach to Honolulu in the Trans Pacific Yacht Race. This event impacted the rest of Robin’s life; he decided to make Hawaii his home. After discharge from the Army he enlisted in the US Coast Guard Reserves and served with the Captain of Honolulu Harbor. During his career as a professional educator, Robin impacted many young lives as a much-admired coach of the water sports he enjoyed – swimming, sailing, body surfing, water polo and paddling. He was a sailing coach at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and water polo coach and classroom teacher at Iolani School and at Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estate. He volunteered as an assistant to the water polo coaches at Le Jardin Academy. Robin also worked in teacher education at Claremont Graduate School, Chaminade University and University of Hawaii at Manoa. During the summers between his years of teaching and coaching, he served as a Long Beach Lifeguard for 45 years.

GLENN CANNON
Charismatic professor, inspiring director, actor extraordinaire. surrounded by friends and family, Glenn Cannon took his final curtain call on April 20, 2013. Glenn’s favorite song was Judy Garland’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” This song brought a smile to his face and tears to all who serenaded him during his final days. Despite successes as a Broadway and Hollywood actor, Glenn’s passion was “giving to others” as exemplified through his 45 years of teaching theatre at the University of Hawaii and directing 163 plays at Kennedy and other local community theatre venues. He was heavily involved in both until the end of his life. Glenn portrayed many memorable characters in his illustrious career including recurring roles as District Attorney John Manicote on the original Hawaii Five-0 and Dr. Ibold on Magnum PI. However, by far, his most cherished roles were that of wise mentor, loyal friend, and loving husband, father, uncle, and most recently grandfather. Glenn your legacy lives on in all the people you touched. For the rest of our lives, whenever we see a rainbow shining across the Hawaiian skies, we know in our hearts, somewhere Glenn Cannon is sitting in his directors chair and smiling down on us all. With much love and Aloha. Glenn is survived by his wife Sam Sil Cannon, son Caleb Cannon and fiancé Jacelyn Wong, granddaughter Kassidy Wong-Cannon, sisters- and brother-in-laws Sam Soo Yoon and Chung Hee Lee and Sam and Daryl Fujii, nephews Jae Sung Lee, Dylan Fujii, and Cody Fujii, and mother-in-law You Soon Chon.

LUCIUS GILBERT ELDREDGE, III
1938 – 2013 Lucius Gilbert Eldredge, III, was born in East Greenwich, Rhode Island and grew up on the family farm. Lu met Joann Travell, the love of his life, in 1957 and they were married the following year. Lu received his BS in zoology from the University of Rhode Island in 1959. Lu and Jo set off to Hawaii for a grand adventure, where they had four daughters while he earned his PhD in invertebrate zoology from the University of Hawaii in 1965. Lu was on faculty at the University of Guam from 1965 to 1987, among his roles serving as the Director of the Marine Laboratory from 1967-1971 and Interim Director of the Micronesian Area Research Center from 1982 1984. He surveyed flora and fauna of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, and completed fieldwork throughout the Caroline, Marshall, Line, and Hawaiian Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Taiwan and Indonesia, and numerous other islands. On sabbatical, he earned his Master’s of Library Studies from University of Hawaii in 1987. Following retirement from the University of Guam, he worked for the Regional Seas Directories and Bibliographies at the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome, Italy. Lu joined the staff of the Bishop Museum in 1989 to take up his position as the Executive Secretary of the Pacific Science Association. He continued his work on the impact of invasive species, serving on the Hawaii Coral Reef Initiative and the Federal Invasive Species Advisory Council. He was a founding member of the Hawaii Bishop Research Institute and was appointed as its Executive Secretary in 1990, a position he kept until his death. He retired from the Museum in 2012 but continued to work on keeping files of every publication known on the fauna of Pacific Islands and co-edited the annual Records of the Hawaii Biological Survey (a record of all native and introduced species to the Hawaiian islands) since its founding in 1992. He was world renowned for his investigations of animals introduced to the Pacific islands from outside sources, where they came from, when, and their current status. Throughout his career, Lu mentored young scientists, consulted with government agencies and published extensively. Lu was loving father, whose daughters could swim before they could walk and learned from him to appreciate the beauty and diversity in the world. He was a gourmet chef and gracious host and his house was the gathering place for celebrations small and large. He had a generous and optimistic spirit, a sympathetic ear, and a big heart. Lu was preceded in death by Jo, his wife for 52 years, and Emelyn, his daughter. He is survived by daughters Sarah Partain (Portland, OR), Deborah Eldredge, (Portland, OR), and Rebecca ‘Nani’ Eldredge (Kaneohe, HI); grandchildren Kay and Jeff (Portland, OR); and sisters Charlotte Blaine (Scituate, RI) and Harriet Brisson (Rehobeth, MA).
